Back in 2016, the 24-year-old actor, who plays Josh in the iconic Netflix movie, posted some incredibly inconsiderate messages about Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and the general political climate in the United States.

One tweet reads, “Hashtags don’t f*cking matter. But all lives do. Black lives matter. White lives matter. Police lives matter.”

Another tweet, which has since been deleted, says, “Black Lives Matter has one goal. Division.”

He also allegedly liked a bunch of similar tweets.

Israel received tons of criticism as a result and issued an apology on the same social media platform.

“I am deeply sorry for my inappropriate and insensitive words and likes on social media,” the statement reads. “I take full responsibility for my actions and I sincerely apologize. This has been a pivotal life lesson for me. I am dedicated to becoming a more informed and educated version of myself. Much love — Israel”

Here’s a thought — DON’T SAY STUPID THINGS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND YOU WON’T HAVE TO APOLOGIZE LATER.
